19 Things Peanut Butter Lovers Need In Their Lives
I love how the nutrition labels on peanut butter jars say a serving size is two tablespoons. It's almost like they don't realize I eat it with a soup ladle. Haha. Hahahahahahaha. BABAHAHAHHAHHHAH! ... Guys? Hello? Don't act like you don't know what I'm talking about. If you love PB as much as I do, you know there's no delicate way to eat it. If you can't get enough of the world's favorite spread, try these 19 things for people obsessed with peanut butter, because they'll bring a tear to your eye.
Why do we love peanut butter so much, anyway? Spoon University attributes our love of peanut butter to the fact that we're one of the world's largest producers of peanuts — peanut butter was created here, and it was a cheap, filling, nutritious alternative during the Great Depression, World War I, and World War II. That, and as a source of satiating fats, your body knows that it can count on peanut butter and its various nut butter cousins to fill and sustain you. And while these are all perfectly reasonable and quite interesting explanations. I offer a third: it's so delicious, I want to get naked and invite it into my bed.
Whatever the explanation may be, we're nuts about peanut butter. According to Texas Peanut Producers, the average American eats three pounds of it a year!
